About this course

The course aims to support teachers in developing their awareness, knowledge, and skills in Grammar Teaching and Learning by revising major approaches, principles, and methods of grammar presentation, practice, and assessment as well as error correction and feedback as an EFL teacher. You will develop a greater understanding of what to teach, and how to teach (present, practice, and assess) grammar in different settings using different approaches. In addition, the course will encourage you to understand your attitude towards grammar teaching and learning and learn from each other through reflection and sharing, forum discussion activities and various tasks. Last but not least, GTL 24 will incorporate various in-class and online tools (hard +soft) that will be applicable in different settings.

By the end of the course, CPs will have a better understanding of:

  • How to teach grammar by analyzing different approaches and lesson models
  • Important concepts of teaching and learning grammar
  • How to present grammar and check meaning, form, and use
  • How to practise grammar both in accuracy-focused and fluency-focused activities and tasks
  • The importance of error correction as an important aspect of the learning process
  • Important principles and methods  of assessing grammar

You can get more information about the calendar and the duration of the course here.


Certification

Course participants will be awarded a badge for completion of all tasks within a session. CPs who collect 8 achievement badges + the welcoming badge (by introducing themselves on the introductions Padlet) will receive a Sabancı University School of Languages (SL-TeDOL): GTL  course completion certificate. This is a free course, and everyone who completes all the required tasks and gets 8 badges will get their certificates.

You can see a copy of the certificate here. Please note the important information about the certification and access to the course content:

"Because we strongly believe that we learn from each other, participation is emphasized in this course. For this reason, those CPs who have only received one badge or less by 8th March will automatically be removed from the course. These CPs will NOT be able to access the course content thereafter. Please make a note of this date since CPs will not receive a prior warning.  Another important date is March 29th. Unfortunately, the CPs who don’t have 3 badges out of 5, will be removed from the course automatically."
